RAMMED EARTH AND STONE HOUSE
|LOCATION||Currumbin Valley, Gold Coast, Qld|
Located in a mystical pine forest setting, this house design needed be at one with it’s site. A natural materials palette was used featuring local bush rock work, rammed earth angular blade walls, galvanised roofing, tanks and downpipes and recycled timbers. This home is for a builder specialising in Luxury sustainable homes and needed to be a showpiece home that utilises sustainability features whilst still representing an air of luxury to dispel the negative image that mainstream media sometimes portrays of sustainable houses. This home is completely self sufficient in water use and creates it’s own power and would be completely at home as a Brisbane River design or a Rural Acreage design.
